Tips for Kids

Children's hands with tablets

Kids can get poisoned by eating, drinking, touching or smelling something that can make you sick or hurt you. Some things, like medicine, can make you sick if you take the wrong kind, or if you take too much. Always ask a trusted grown-up before you take any medicine.

Remember: If you don’t know what something is, never put it in your mouth. Always ask a trusted grown-up first. Never take medicine unless a grown-up gives it to you.
